Grand Unity Event Center Wedding | Kelley + Evan | By Anna


“The first look… I had butterflies in my stomach, the same as when we first met.” -Kelley

“Seeing Kelley in her dress for the first time was the best part of the day for me. She looked like an angel.” – Evan

Kelley & Evan‘s Northern Michigan wedding was everything a couple dreams of for their wedding day. It was beautiful, intimate, emotional, full of love, and so much fun.

Kelley & Evan began their day a few miles apart- making preparations with their family and friends. As Evan recalls those early moments of the day, one word comes to mind: “Excitement! I did a lot of pacing around our house in my tux, waiting for the ‘first look’, but I never felt nervous or anxious. I was really looking forward to seeing my beautiful bride and was excited to start the day’s festivities.”

And before they knew it, the moment had arrived for Evan to be reunited with his soon-to-be wife. And let me tell you… these two were made for each other. The smiles. The laughs. The easiness. What a joy it was to see Kelley & Evan enjoy their wedding day together, soaking it all in, anxious to finally be united as one. From the first look to the breathtaking ceremony, the day only gained momentum. Soon, Kelley & Evan and all of their wedding guests were seated around tables and reminiscing about their childhoods and high school years. So much love was contained within a single room that it was hard not to tear up when the most beautiful and heartfelt toasts were given.

Kelley & Evan, it was a privilege to be a part of your special day. Thank you. And congratulations!
